Squash (Pak/mil Style)

Squash (Pak Style)
Originally uploaded by wayfarer.


Take a squash (acorn, butternut, whatever) and dice into cubes - leave the skin on. I take the seeds out (you can roast them - yummy!). Fry in a little oil with 1/2 teaspoon rai, 1/2 teaspoon kalonji, 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic paste, 2 teaspoons ginger paste and 1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon turmeric. Add a little water. Add whole red chilis (dry) and salt to taste. Add tamarind*** (2 teaspoons paste) and about a half cup of water. Put on low and cover.

*** soak tamarind in warm water to make paste
